Does anybody know info about Graeme Clark?
Clark was born in Camden, New South Wales on August 16, 1935. As a young boy, Clark’s father became deaf and this inspired his lifelong mission to help deaf people.
Clark attended Camden Primary School and then Sydney Boys High for one year. The remainder of his secondary education was in Royle House at Scots College in Sydney. He then went on to study medicine at the University of Sydney, graduating in 1957 with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) with honours and was top of his year. He continued his studies in 1962, in general surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh.
He then he specialised in ear nose and throat surgery at the Royal National Throat Nose and Ear Hospital and obtained a fellowship in 1969 from the Royal College of Surgeons, London. Clark then returned to Australia and became a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and in 1969 completed his PhD at the University of Sydney on “Middle Ear & Neural Mechanisms in Hearing and in the Management of Deafness”. At the same time, he completed a Master of Surgery thesis on “The Principles of the Structural Support of the Nose and its Application to Nasal and Septal Surgery’.
In 1976 he returned to England to study at the University of Keele, and to learn more about speech science, as this knowledge was also essential for enabling him to work on converting complicated speech signals into electrical stimuli of the hearing nerve.

How does this professional intended letter sound to you? Any help would be great! Thank you?
I've made some changes, mostly small things. Things in CAPS have been added or changed. Asterisks ******* indicate where I've deleted something and not replaced it.
You need a salutation and a signature. I don't know who this is being sent to - are you asking for help from the community? Are you informing other members of the community center? You might want to make a few changes so that the reader knows exactly why you are telling him these things. If I received this letter I would not be sure what you wanted from me.
